  1. Brakes not fully releasing again.Please help me!

    Wheels, Tires, Brakes, and Suspension
    Well not totally sure as I sold it 18 months after I had the last work done. Never had another issue so figured it was resolved though. The last time it was in we changed the brake fluid and he disassembled both front brake sets replaced with new factory parts. Strange part is I had this same...

    To answer some of your questions above: The tech i'm working with is open to ideas as he's at a total lost just like the other 3 plus techs that have worked on this truck over the years. To your next question on calipers, yes both fronts have been changed but not the rears. The current shop...

    Well Ford Doctor mentioned it. Just trying to cover all bases. And by the way when I was buying my truck I printed out some info that said job 3 trucks of 2008 would be seeing the addition of hydro-boost which was not on the job 1 trucks and I'm pretty certain the job 2's either.

    Sorry for my ignorance but what does power steering fluid have to do with the hydro boost? Reason I ask is my truck was made when hydro boost was first introduced in 2008.

    By the way in another forum a guy mentions a very similar issue and said the brake light sensor was out of adjustment which was not allowing the pedal to move out far enough away from the floor board. Possibility?

    By the way I live in the Charlotte NC area and my truck vary rarely goes off road. Its garaged when not in use and sees more hwy driving than anything.
  9. Brakes not fully releasing again.Please help me!

    Wheels, Tires, Brakes, and Suspension
    I can get a list for everyone as I have all that data. Again just can't understand how it can be a individual brake issue. Yes if one or two doesn't release at times I can see a binding issue, rust, needing grease or cleaning etc but starting from being a new truck, all repaired and cleaned...

    Well if you read my original post you will see the reason I decided to changed out the front rotors. Its because I was tired of the vibration when braking from warped front rotors. Yes the brakes had been releasing properly for six months but at the same time i was tired of driving a truck...

    100,000. I drive about 12k per year. Pretty consistent mileage and stays in my garage when not driven.
  12. Brakes not fully releasing again.Please help me!

    Wheels, Tires, Brakes, and Suspension
    I'm not a mechanic but the only items I know for sure are the pads and rotors. I do know the second time this happened was in 2010 and I was towing with about 12k (new traile with dual axle brakes) coming back from the mountains and the front left got extremely hot damaging most all the...

    In 08 I bought new a 2008 model F250 and have 100k miles on it now. The only issue i've ever really had are with the brakes. Over the years I have had multiple issues with brake calipers not fully releasing. This normally happens on the front left but all wheels have done this. To date I'm...
  14. Limited slip problems

    6.7L Power Stroke Engine and Drivetrain
    Gm actually offer the best and most positive rear tractor system. It works as good as fords rear locker but it totally automatic and instant. Fords limited slips are junk and when I buy a new truck i quickly put in after market. For alot of highway driving i like the following. Eaton...
  15. Limited slip problems

    6.7L Power Stroke Engine and Drivetrain
    you can add more of the limited slip additive to make it bite more. Well maybe I have it backwards not sure. Anyway you can change the amount of the additive and make the rear work or engage better but it will also reduce the clutch packs some. However I will take a working unit any day. I...
  16. what is this thing?

    6.4L Power Stroke Engine and Drivetrain
    I think and am hoping that it was making noise as it was loose. When I took a look at it I noticed it was almost totally out of its lock position. I realigned it and locked it back in place. So far all is good.
  17. High miles and problems on a 6.4?

    6.4L Power Stroke Engine and Drivetrain
    I would wait if I were you as well considering you would be buying used vehicle and not sure how the previous owner cared for the truck. These trucks do great but they need proper maintenance. You can run them hard, and they need it, but proper maintenance is key. I've had very good luck with...
  18. High miles and problems on a 6.4?

    6.4L Power Stroke Engine and Drivetrain
    this thread scares me a bit too. I'm nearing 100k with very little problems. For those that deleted the dpf and didn't beat on their truck how are they holding up? Again, I've had very good luck out of mine and have really enjoyed it. I do tow 10-13k several times a year but don't race it...
  19. what is this thing?

    6.4L Power Stroke Engine and Drivetrain
    Thats exactly what I thought it might be. Reason being is that last time it made noise was just after engaging 4x4. So why would it be making noise? I took it loose and reassembled it so maybe just wasn't fastened properly. Will engage 4x4 again to see.
  20. what is this thing?

    6.4L Power Stroke Engine and Drivetrain
    So this device makes a vibrating / humming sound thats very noticeable in the cab. However, it only does it for a bit then stops. What is this and should I be worried? Its the black box with the orange end or connector on it.
